The Munchies Den was created, brought to you, and hosted by Chef Harold Wong. The whole theme of The Munchies Den is to promote local chefs and local businesses.” There are so many home grown chefs and moms and pops places that just don’t have the funds to do the right marketing”. You will see The Munchies Den pop up at places like bars and local hole in the wall restaurants and more. Chef Harold Wong started learning sushi in his early teens in Taiwan, his uncle put him to work washing dishes while on his summer vacation when he went back to visit. “Nothing like free labor” his uncle would say in Taiwanese, but all in all that was the start for Chef Harold Wong he eventually started cutting the vegetables and cleaning up the sushi bar, even started making some rolls. After his summer internship in Taiwan (vacation) Chef Harold started working all kinds of odd jobs from the Houston chronicle as a door-to-door salesman, “yes I was that annoying guy knocking on the door trying to sell something”. Chef Harold even bussed tables and did custom audio installations for some of Houston’s pro athletes from Andre Johnson and Chester Pitts from the Houston Texans to players of the Rockets as well. It was after high school Chef Harold’s father told him he needed to start a real career and if he didn’t his father would throw him in the kitchen with him. The thought of working in a Chinese kitchen sweating with no ac tossing the hot wok got Chef Harold motivated to look elsewhere. He said “it just click to do sushi” with his work camp summer years back and now 10 years later Chef Harold Wong is one of the executive Chefs at Houston’s biggest and most well known sushi companies in Houston the Azuma Group.
